Ok so I have had intermittant crashes with my Asus B550-E since the day I had it but they have been rare lately. However upon installing my new GPU today I decided to check out the ram slots and one of the ram slots seems to have 2 large plastic mounds inside of the slot that seem to be preventing the ram in that slot from making full contact. I tested my ram in the other 3 slots and there was no errors in memtest at all but upon trying the ram in the "faulty?" slot then errors were seen right away. A friend was nice enough to test the ram for me in his system as well and the ram came back with zero errors. I have tried removing the plastics from the slot but they seem to be melted and not removable. So would you say this is basically a faulty socket issue. Think about getting a new motherboard tbh!
